Annual Education Week report gives WA average grade

You know we like tracking progress and benchmarks.  This news out of Partnership for Learning this week… Education Week’s annual Quality Counts report gave Washington an average grade (good for 23rd in the nation) for its state education policy and achievement. You can also access an interactive map with the report’s measurables. The annual report gave Washington average grades of C in five of six categories (K-12 achievement; school finance; transitions and alignment; standards, assessments and accountability; and teaching profession). The report did give Washington a grade of B- in “chance for success” using the indicators of early foundations, school years and adult outcomes. It’s the 18th year Education Week has compiled the report.
